(CNSNews.com) - "I did not have a chance to comment on how good the White House looked in rainbow colors," President Obama told a news conference on Tuesday.

"That made it a really good week -- to see people gathered in an evening outside on a beautiful summer night, and to feel whole and to feel accepted and to feel that they had a right to love -- that was pretty cool. That was a good thing," he said in response to a question.

The White House was illuminated with the colors of the rainbow in celebration of the Supreme Court decision imposing, by judicial fiat, same-sex marriage on all 50 states. The nation is deeply divided on both the ruling and the issue itself, and while some happy Americans basked in the glow of the rainbow illumination, others were offended by what was perceived as a divisive and in-your-face move at the "people's house."

Obama did have one reservation, he said: "And the only bad part about it was I couldn't go out and peek at it myself because then I would have had to clear out all the people, or the Secret Service would have.

"So I -- I could only reflect on it from a television screen. That's a moment worth savoring."
